Just Say NO!!

I need to learn to say "No" to a scrapping challenge!

Well, you know I'm in Embellished Idol...made it through to round 2...amazing cos I think my vintage LO sux in hindsight hahahaha - just flat...but c'est la vie.

Any way round 2 was to scraplift a LO from one of 4 famous scrappers AND have the theme 10 things I am thankful for...that was fun - I did an Elsie lift.

I am totally loving my Idol challenges...but on Friday night I attended the cyercrop over at SBO & there were 3 challenges set...all fab challenges & I have completed them - no probs....but there's also a comp for Queen of the Crop I can't get points for additional LOs/cards/projects you complete & so I've been scrapping like a crazy momma again!!!

Is 9 LOs & 4 cards in a weekend ridiculous??? ( that's not including the OTP & card for my SIL's baby shower on Friday night & my Idol entry)

I must confess though I did a little double dipping...I did my NZ Dares LO & my page for the BOM challenge over at SE...but the points are for scrapping in addition to the challenges...not like entering the LOs for judging - so I'm OK with that.

Anyhoo I'm taking a break from scrapping to tell you about my scrapping ROFLMAO!!! Jeez i'm a nutter at times - now I know where my crazy kids get it from !!!

yeah - I think I need a wee break....then I'll come back & work on my DT entries.

Well, blogger will only let me share 3 "Love & Kindess" was for a Favourites Challenge - I totally love it when my babies show their love & kindness!! "Its a girl thing" I LOVE that pic....thanks to Vicky Gibson for the photography tips & I wanted to try a big flower....thanks for the inspiration Julie. "Bring on Summer" wanted to test drive my new Maya Road chipboard swirls - OMG they are devine!!! Super thick chipboard & the tin is cutie cutie cutie!!! I got my CBX stencil letters from the Embellished Shoppe thought I'd whack a bit of paint behind them to bring out the letters & then when I saw it in the gallery of SBO it kinda looked like you can see the sky through the letters & man was I impressed with myself...totally looks like a summer sky - accidentally BRILLIANT!!! LMAO!!

I've got to find a new word...can you count how many times I've said totally in this post...crazy!!!

OK time to get organaized - the day is nearly done!!!

You never cease to amaze me with how much you can get done!! I honestly don't know how you do it. Although I bet if I didn't have to work full-time I would be finding a lot more "excuses" to be in the scrapping room, LOL :-)

Great work!!
